The flexitarian approach

Although some people still consider dogs to be carnivores, studies show us that dogs are actually omnivores. Animals, like ourselves, capable of extracting nutrients from both animal and plant sources. But now a new term has entered our vocabulary. Flexivore, meaning an animal primarily a carnivore but not strictly so. An animal capable of benefiting from a flexitarian diet. An animal adaptable enough to be able to utilise both plant-based and animal-based nutrients. Animal nutrients when meat is plentiful, plant-based nutrients when meat is scarce. A flexitarian diet for dogs sounds like the perfect diet for the modern world, and it truly is if you get it right.

While it may be anathema to some people, it’s a fact that dogs are perfectly cabapable of thriving on a properly balanced plant-based diet. Not only have some of the world’s longest lived dogs been fed a wholly plant-based diet, modern studies show that in many cases, a plant-based diet can actually be healthier for some dogs. Particularly dogs with certain health conditions. If you then factor in the environmental impact of producing meat for food, a flexitarian approach, a flextarian diet for dogs makes absolute sense.

Benefits of a flexitarian diet for dogs

By treating your dog as a flexivore, by feeding it a combination of largely plant-based ingredients together with meat based proteins when they are both available and affordable, you can:

Feed your dog meat when meat is plentiful and inexpensive (when it’s on offer at the supermarket for example)
Complete a largely plant-based diet with organ meats which are generally cheap all year round
Feed a largely plant-based diet if that is your preference but still ensure you dog has a complete diet by providing some meat-based proteins
Ensure your dog has a digestive system capable of thriving whatever fresh food you have available at the time
Adopt an approach that is not only healthier for your dog, but one that is also considerably more sustainable for the planet

So if you want to feed your dog a plant-based, vegan or vegetarian diet but you’re not completely comfortable not feeding it meat, feeding your dog a flexivorous, flexidogian diet could work for you. Simply feed your dog a flexitarian diet for dogs!
